CLEAVER Special Edition Ltd. is a full-bodied, full-strength box-pressed toro. The wrapper is a gorgeous Corojo 99 leaf (just look at that pic!). Fillers are medio tiempo ligeros from Nicaragua…and some secret places…all aged between 9-12 years!
First light is a huge wave of flavor! Milk chocolate, tanned leather and sweet tea rush across the palate. Immediately following are espresso bean and clove. The finish adds notes of red oak wood and vanilla. The retrohale is warming with a cinnamon burn.
As it progresses, big blasts of caramel and black peppercorn emerge. Buttercream appears on the finish along with hints of all-spice and nutmeg.
Halfway, the aged of the tobacco begins to shine through! Custard, white chocolate, and almond begin to dominate. Hints of whiskey barrel, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes. The flavors layer on top of each other so perfectly–that you’ll be smacking your lips after every puff!
The last third, things get intense! Huge notes of dark chocolate, dark stout beer, and jalapeño emerge. The brown sugar sweetness grows. The finish is long adding cashew, red oak wood, and licorice. The burn is perfect and cigar stays cool all the way to the nub of the nub!
CLEAVER Special Edition Ltd. is an absolutely phenomenal cigar! Period. I’m not even gonna beat around the bush. The precision balance and complexity of flavors are almost indescribable!“Source: EZHQ
